oh ya the rims are off my sonoma, they are a 2wd offset and i just bought a 5th rim a few days ago for the spare, i need the 4x4 in the winter cuz i drive on sideroads up in barrie a lot thats where i live the 2wd was just a bitch 2 get around in , the wheels stick out bout a inch on the front but the back is perfect, ive been thinkin bout droppin it but i just went on vacation to mt tremblant, partied 2 hard and drpooed like $900 in 3 days , also i hear droppin a 4x4 is tricky, i have no idea how 2 do it, i posted a thred on it and no 1 really had a good way to do it i got a lot of "why?"...lol...so if anyone can give me a part list of what i will need that would b good...lol

dropping a 4x4 is a cake walk. blocks and uncrank keys.
thats all i need? how hard to install? how hard to reverse this for winter?

well i was first going to raise my blaze.. so you crank the keys. get an 18mm socket with ratchet and get under your blaze about half way back. may be different. i have a 4 door. look for the cross memeber. there is a bolt on each side. un crank them and just keep a measure on where they would be with the 3" blocks in the rear. (i had to have mine all the way out, some don't)the hardest part is getting the old u bolts out and getting the new blocks and bolts in is pretty easy.



hit up www.blazinlow.com for more info and stuff for blazers.

It's really not good to continuously crank and uncrank the torsion bars, a few times is ok but a buddy of mine did it 5-6 times and he totally messed up his front suspension because of it.

thanx 4 the compliments on the spare guys, im really glad im no thte only 1 that likes it, its not every day you see a spare matching 20 thats why i bought the jimmy with the exteriour mount. and im looking into drpooin it a little more now, probably not much like 2 inches or so. i haveto keep this truck running good as it is a daily driver so its not going to be a show truck also i only keep my rides for a year or so. im plaining on my next ride to be a 2wd colerado (i will be moving out of barrie aka the snow belt of ontario by next summer) or something else. bu i definately want to do a noma or s10 on bags when i have room to work on it. probably a 1g like a 90 or somethin.
